Hello! So it seems like ATLauncher has ms account support and works on the RPI for now! I'm talking with them to see if it can detect if it's running on a RPI and link the lwjgl by default.
Keep us updated, rpinews.
Pi-Apps awaits! :D

Re: plugging in a powered external drive disconnects the boot drive

Not sure if it's relevant to this seemingly power-related issue, but I've had this similar issue in the past: Duplicate the Pi's SD card to a USB drive, without changing the UUIDs. Unplug the USB drive. Plug in the USB drive. The Pi will immediately unmount the SD card's boot partition, and then aut...

Re: BLUE Raspberry Pi 3B+?

Yes, manufactured for the Brazilian market (but not in Brazil) I don't think they are made any more. Are there any blue Pi 4B computers? Same question. I'd love to get my hands on a blue 4B! What ever happened to those red Pi3s for the Chinese market? Do they now make red 4Bs? Black would be my fav...

BLUE Raspberry Pi 3B+?

I was browsing Amazon this morning and found this:

In addition to the color change, the Amazon listing is titled "Element14 Raspberry Pi 3 B+ Motherboard".
A lot of questions come to mind.

Is this a Brazilian Pi?

Re: Smallest 4G adapter for RPi?

As for latency, with our simple set up, using nginx to receive the live stream and forward it as RTMP and HLS streams, the biggest latency problem is in a all the buffering that nginx does. Both client streams are about 10 seconds behind real-time. If you have any suggestions for reducing the laten...

Re: Smallest 4G adapter for RPi?

While I'd love to use a smaller, non-4G module, it seems to me that 4G is the only network capable of transmitting live video. I came across a similar project called SOLARBOI. It's a remote-control, solar-powered rover that drives for kilometers in Australia. The maker determined that 3G was too slo...

Re: Smallest 4G adapter for RPi?

Can't give you a recommendation, but if you remove the plastic case and de-solder the USB connector (and all the other connectors on the Raspberry Pi you don't need for your project), things get considerably smaller and more lightweight. Yes, but first it's important to start with the right dongle ...

Smallest 4G adapter for RPi?

I'm considering building a long-range, first-person-view, remote control rover. To transmit drive commands and live video, I think a cellular radio + raspberry pi is the only option. If you know of a more compact option please let me know. This rover is small. Every millimeter counts. A USB 4G LTE a...

What should be the official Minecraft Pi logo?

There is a group of Pi devs who have managed to add a bunch of cool stuff to Minecraft Pi Edition. For example, they've made a playable survival mode, multiplayer, a 3D-glasses mode, and with the help of Docker, have gotten it running on x86 Linux machines. In a few days, it will be added to Pi-Apps...

Who does regular, automated 3G/1G Pi3 kernel builds?

To run WINE on a Pi3, you need to recompile the kernel to a 3G/1G memory split. I remember seeing a website, forum post, blog, SOMEBODY said they were regularly compiling this kernel and uploading it to a download server. Right now , I'd very much like to find it. ;) Does this ring a bell for anyone...
